Well it is reassuring to hear I'm not an anomaly at least!
Ruby-My DH commented on it as well, went to grab a towel (lol)
Sgrumbling and ADV- here is to waiting to O!
Lisa -I'm having such a hard time because of not ovulating for so long I don't even know my own body and I find that very frustrating, so yes I am probably symptom spotting , but it is so hard not to!

I'm really trying to stay positive, finally ovulating helps! I don't know how long my cycle is to even know when to expect AF. ..I'm thinking I'm going to try to hold out to 12 dpo as that seems a fairly reliable date to test.

Lisa, I don't think there is anything wrong with holding on to hope... If nothing else it will get you through your two week wait until your BFP! Keep me up to date, still keeping my FX for you!

ADV thank you for your great advice again. It is really helping to be on this rollercoaster with such a great group of ladies!

BFP's for us all please!

Lisa- Vitex is a natural alternative to Clomid. It works on the pituitary gland and supports LH and FSH hormones, then helps boost progesterone in the luteal phase. I usually have a longer luteal phase on it. You can order it anywhere online. I get mine for about $9 a month. There aren't many side effects, however sometimes it takes a while to get going. You take it all through your cycle without a break. Helps my moods and PMS too. Chasteberry tree is the herb that is used in it. I used it on my November cycle and had a really nice ovulation and really nice post -O temps. (We just missed our BD timing that cycle :( I'm hoping it's going to do the charm this time :)

FX Lisa! Me too... AF due today/ tomorrow... Hoping she's gone on holiday for the next 9 months :-) but been having some slight AF cramps so I guess only time will tell. Going to wait until Monday to test if AF doesn't show so that I can call the clinic if BFN.

Hey ladies, I'm a little different on this thread, but maybe you wouldn't mind me jumping in? I'm using Femara so very similar to clomid. You all just seem to be communicating much more actively than the Femara threads. Lol. I'm on cd5 and 2nd night of Femara to be taken cd 4-9. I have read through a lot of this thread and have found it very interesting to follow. Good luck to you all this cycle!!
